Plugging into 110v at the house.

Never tried plugging into the 110v outlet at the house with my fiver but may need to to cycle the Whirlpool fridge's icemaker overnight. My question is, I know I'll have to dogbone it down to 110 with a 50 amp, 30 amp, then 110 adapter. To run the refrigerator, do I need to shut off the inverter and just run the 110v? Or will the inverter already know what to do and I just run the fridge after plugging in to 100v? I'm torn once again on how to winterize the Whirlpool even though I know the manuals state do not run antifreeze through it.

Just plug it in and the inverter will take over and run the fridge off the batteries.

Thanks. And I'm assuming the plug in will be charging the batteries at the same time?

Yes, and a 15 amp socket will work just fine.

I just winterized my rig and blew all the lines out, including the fridge water in the door - then ran the fridge overnight in the Quick Ice mode to purge any left over water. In the morning there was only a few partial cubes.


As long as you have shore power, the inverter will just bypass.


I use this to plug in at home:

Use a 12G extension cord and this will let you run anything other than the A/C.

A/C will draw more than this adapter will comfortably handle.
When my North Point is home during the summer, it is always plugged in like this.

NO !!!! The inverter will NOT "take over and run the fridge off the batteries" when plugged into shore power. Shore power will run the fridge !

Agree with triplevalp. On our North Point, the inverter automatically switches to pass through mode when connected to shore power. If shore power is lost, the inverter switches to battery.

I have one of these too and love it. No more pulling out the 50 amp cable, 50 to 30 and 30 to 15 amp adapters. I also use a 12 guage extension.

Thanks for all the responses. Like I said, never plugged into house 110v before.

Don't run the AC units

You can run your lights, charge your batteries, and run your fridge off a 15A/115V plug, but don't run your air conditioner that way. If the house breaker doesn't trip, you can melt the power adapter plug. It's not designed for the kind of load your air conditioner will draw.


You should probably avoid running an electric water heater too. Use propane to heat your water. By itself, the electric water heater element doesn't draw too much power but combined with the fridge, it may overload the 15A plug.
